To see a fine lady upon a white horse

Lester wanted some Him Time in London today, so I took myself off to Banbury in Oxfordshire. It's the home of the cross in the nursery rhyme:
"Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross
To see a fine lady upon a white horse.
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
She shall have music wherever she goes."

No shot of Banbury Cross - sorry - it's in the middle of a roundabout and constantly surrounded by traffic and it's very difficult to get a halfway decent shot of it!
Instead, here's a detail of the statue of the lady on her horse. It's cast in bronze. This is what happens to bronze when you get to work with the sliders in Picasa. :-)
I was very taken with how beautifully her hands have been sculpted. A lot of artists, even some of the masters, have difficulty with hands and feet
Oh very nice shot and I'm liking your work with the sliders.

Really nice composition of the statue, you have shown the detail well. The hands are very fine, they do look very real.
